An Intellectual Jump Rope Deep Dive With Dylan Plummer (#60)

You don’t just have to focus on the physical aspect of jump rope. It’s an extremely mental sport as well!” —Dylan Plummer

Dylan Plummer is is a decorated competitive jump rope athlete, and one of the original jumpers who used to post to YouTube over a decade ago. Dylan and I originally met digitally during those YouTube days, but this is actually the first full conversation we’ve had! And we go very deep on this one. We start out discussing his computer science profession and how he’s using machine learning in the biology field (which is extremely interesting), and then we move into more jump rope focused topics such as the accessibility of information in our sport, how the impossible becomes possible, whether or not older jumpers over 20 can be faster than youth, and a whole lot more.

You can listen to the podcast on Apple PodcastsSpotifyStitcher and Overcast.
